Walked a little further, which turned out the be the other side of the island, and we found the beach! Being a grey and misty kind of day, it wasn't ideal for beach, but you could tell this would be chock full of people had the sun been out. The beach was definitely one of the prettier ones I've seen here, although because it was kind of an alcove it sort of collected a bunch of trash. Maybe by summer it'll be cleaned up. Hm. As we walked down the beach we saw one of the tourist attractions- Ancient Stone. It's a big rock with a circle carved in it behind glass, so high off the sidewalk you can't really see it. Oh and it's at the base of a hotel. Very odd. Walk a little further though and you find the real gem of the beach- the Wind Surfing Club. You can rent kayaks and wind surfing boats AND there's an attached restaurant and bar. Paul and I sat seaside at this deserted bar sipping cocktails (Paul a beer) at sunset (even though you couldn't see the sun). Twas quite lovely. But was getting late and we had a party to attend.
I can't wait to come back here once the weather's nice. It would be a great place to explore more, eat yummy seafood, and get your tan and swim on. Hopefully it won't be a zoo all summer!

So yeah, add it to the list for visitors; Cheung Chau. Happy Monday and beginning of Social Media Week. Guess who has a press pass. That's right; this kid!
